Bibby Scientific announced today that Stuart®, a leading UK manufacturer of benchtop laboratory equipment, has launched new Flexi Block accessories for use with the Stuart® range of block heaters. The new Flexi Block accessories offer analytical and life scientists a revolutionary way to heat samples of any size.
The new Flexi Block accessories are available in either double-or triple-width aluminium block inserts and include high-density ceramic beads as standard. The ceramic beads offer excellent thermal transfer and therefore allow for precise and uniform heating of the sample. They can be easily manipulated to accommodate any diameter test tube, microtube, vials, cuvettes as well as microplates. Unskirted PCR plates can be heated in either the double-or triple-width Flexi Blocks, whereas skirted microtitre plates, deep-well plates and PCR plates are better suited to incubation in the triple-width versions.
The new Flexi Block accessories are compatible with any two-or three-block versions of Stuart® block heaters. The range of Stuart® block heaters provides precise heating of samples, which is ideal for many sensitive analytical procedures. Available in either two or three block versions, Stuart® block heaters offer complete heating control up to maximum temperatures of either 130˚C or 200˚C. The digital versions feature a bright, easy to read, LED display, which facilitates simple temperature setting and accurate temperature monitoring.
"Stuart is committed to providing new and innovative products which simplify everyday processes," said Katy Bridge, Assistant Product Manager at Bibby Scientific. "These Flexi Block accessories offer improved precision and versatility for heating laboratory samples."
All Stuart® products feature BioCote® antimicrobial protection and offer a 3 year warranty as standard.
